I have an ESV Study Bible which I like and use. However, I have a little trouble with the single column print. It is a little hard for me to read. I prefer double column. The ESV Student Study Bible is the answer. It has double column print. It also has many colored illustrations, many short character profiles, and book introductions and foot notes that are a condensed version of the ESV Study Bible, all good features. I especially like the DID YOU KNOW? boxes on nearly every page. That is one of the best features I have ever seen in a Study Bible.
My daughter picked this ESV Student Study Bible to use for church and school. The extras like the maps and concordance are useful. As she becomes more acquainted with the features of the Bible it will benefit her more and more. This will definitely be the Bible she will use for years to come! Also, the colors and design won't be out of style when she uses it as an adult.
